Outdoor Skills Workshop
Moving Mountains

Home / South West / Bristol


Moving Mountains is an independant company based near Bristol where we are driven by as passion for getting young people outdoors learning outdoor skills. We have developed a range of workshops and experience days for all age groups that focus around key outdoor skills such as bushcraft, archery and navigation. Think they have nothing to do with the curriculum? Think again!! We can link all of our activities to curriculum subjects such as science, maths, english, geography and DT.

We can do this either at your school site (happy to travel!) or at our basecamp in South Gloucestershire. From an idea of what you want to do to a full list of skills you want to cover, we personalise each of our programmes to your needs and the students needs.

We have worked with schools delivering one off experience days, weekly workshops and nurture groups for those from disadvantaged and SEN backgrounds (pupil premium). Talk to us today about how we can help!

Why are Moving Mountains a great choice for bringing fun workshops into your school?

Outdoor Skills are a fantastic way to develop resilience, teamwork, communication, confidence and boost mental and physical health!

Our workshops can be run as stand alone events, popular for enrichment days, sports weeks or rewards. SATS students love them as a reward and they are also great start of the year bonding workshops.

We can also run weekly workshops over a period of time with the same class - popular with our primary schools. Over a number of weeks we build on the skills taught to give every child confidence in the outdoors.

What activities are available during group visits?

We have a number of pre-created Experience Days which can be run with anything from a class to a full year group! They are themed around:
Bushcraft - Is the next Ray Mears in your class? Knife skills, backwoods cooking, natural materials, fire lighting.
Disaster Simulation - can your students find their family and survive the aftermath of a natural disaster?
Navigation - Great for DofE students and those wanting an alternative to traditional PE. A morning of navigation theory and practise with an afternoon of hiking in your local area!
Secret Agent - Morse code, ariel mapping, parachutes.
Survivor - range of survival skills needed to stay alive and healthy including alternative fire lighting, shelters, signalling and first aid.
Wilderness Engineer - Building structures out of natural materials starting with table top structures and working up to human sized!
Archery - A target sport that students will quickly see improvements in.

Our weekly workshops can be adapted to nclude a range of the outdoor skills we teach including firelighting, archery, outdoor cooking, bushcraft, knife skills, tree ID, water purification, morse code and semaphore, first aid and teambuilding.

Do you cater for visitors with Special Educational Needs (SEN)?

Yes! Our site and programme are great for SEN students. Every child should have the opporunity to develop in the outdoors.
